“Genes, Brains, and Talk”

Research Study on Childhood Apraxia of Speech Arizona State University and University of Washington

A study at Arizona State University and the University of Washington is currently seeking participants to find out how genes and brain activity affect the way people with childhood apraxia of speech talk. Participants will be asked to complete speech, language, reading, and reasoning tests, do hand movement tasks, listen to sounds while wearing an EEG net, and give a small amount of blood or saliva.

Children with a diagnosis of childhood apraxia of speech
Ages 9-15 years
In some cases, their parents can participate in the study, too.

Starting now; by appointment

Arizona State University, Tempe Campus

How long?

Behavioral testing may be completed in a separate session from EEG testing, at your home if this is more convenient

Reimbursement is $10 per hour, plus parking expenses
